Big start to Manx Cup in prospect

Douglas derby and Ramsey travel to Vagabonds

With Ramsey "B" conceding to Southern Nomads along with Emerging Nomads and Vagabonds Hornets both withdrawing, the Manx Cup gets underway on Saturday afternoon in a slightly abbreviated form.

It will now be a five-team competition played on a league basis with home and away games before the top two play in the final in May.

Southern Nomads miss out on rotation this weekend.

There's a derby clash at Port-e-Chee when Douglas North play Douglas South.

The sides met twice before Christmas with both games being tight affairs.

At Ballafletcher, Vagabonds play Ramsey in the other contest with little to chose between the two teams.
